Larry, guiding for The Hatch, is releasing a nice Rainbow. He had plenty of experience netting and releasing fish for his group of 6 anglers.

Boxwood Gulch Fishing Report for Sat, 18 Oct 2008

We are having the best October fishing ever. Liam is holding just one of the huge fish he landed and his guide, Tom Whitley, is thinking about how many “Trade Secret flies” he has left to distribute around to the group. The fish are still eating surface patterns, streamers, and they always eat nymphs. Most […]

Most fish were taken on Dries and Streamers and a lot of really big Trout were landed on nearly every trip. Your guide will have the proper flies, that are working, and your guide will […]
